These extend the Heritage Centre’s learning themes into the local area.
Heritage Centre and Hareshaw Linn
This is a 3½-mile return walk up picturesque Hareshaw Burn to a linn (waterfall) at the end of a deep gorge. You’ll pass through the site of the ill-fated, short-lived Hareshaw Foundry, walking on and through ‘mounds of industrial archaeology’.
Heritage Centre and Bellingham Village Trail
Compare our village to the area where your children live? Explore Bellingham using this free village trail leaflet produced by local children to tell others about where they live. Or use the adult trail to explore it for yourself, on sale at the Heritage Centre.
Heritage Centre and Bastles
After your visit take one of the short or long walks on the nearby Tarset Bastle Trail and see why this area was such a ‘murderous medieval realm’ in the time of the Reivers.
Heritage Centre and Kielder Castle Forest Park Centre
Extend your study of land use by visiting the Forestry Commission’s visitor centre in the middle of a purpose-built village for forestry workers, surrounded by northern Europe’s largest man-made woodland.
You’ll also pass the breathtaking Kielder Reservoir, built to supply water to homes and industries of the NE.
